How many times have you been in A Christmas Carol?
I was Belinda last year, and now I'm Martha Cratchit. I am really part of the family!

What are your favorite holiday traditions?
Saint Nicholas day, a German tradition, where we place a shoe in the window the evening of December 5th with a carrot or apple for Saint Nicholas' horse, and the next morning it's filled with old time candy and a wooden toy! I also love going downtown and looking at all the Christmas windows, especially the SPCA puppies, then picking out an ornament at Macy's.

What's your favorite thing about the Bay Area during the holidays?
Everyone is smiling and I love the smell of the know Christmas is coming.

When Christmas Past appears, up in the air...oh yes, and when it snows.

Who is your favorite character in A Christmas Carol?
Beautiful Christmas Past.

Marshall Fields' Frango Mints

What is your favorite Christmas movie?
A Christmas Story, I crack up every time. It is so funny..
